    My TWH

    I'd like to have an idea about where my 3 year old tennessee walking horse stands in conformation. I know this pic isn't the best to base conformation on but it's the best I have right now, it's just a quick pic I took while I had her stretched out in her TWH pose although her feet aren't actually squared perfect. She is just my pleasure trail horse but I am thinking of doing some endurance rides with her in the future & she'll probably never be bred while I own her, which I never plan on doing. She is bred great with 5 or more WGCs in her immediate pedigree, which doesn't always mean she will be built perfect. I just want to know where she stands in conformation for a TWH at her age, not really a down to a T evaluation. I really appreciate any & all opinions & critiques whether good or bad, thanks! (=

    Also I forgot to ad that she's been ridden less than 10 times in 1 1/2 years (she was broke months before turning 2 by her 1st owner) where I've been in school but now I'm getting more able to ride & plan to several days a week from now on.

    There is really no way to give a critique with her over parked like she is. Please take a picture of her squared up, straight on from the side, front and back. There is a link at the top on critique criteria.

    Oh ok, at first I thought it would help because she's a TWH but after thinking about it I realize her squared regular is best for what I'm asking. It will take me a couple days to get the pics where she doesn't stay at my house.

    Based on what I see in the first picture, she doesn't look too bad. Her shoulder angle looks pretty good for a TWH, but it must just be from the way she is parked, but her front legs look a bit awkward. I would like to see a picture of her squared up to be able to tell you a lot more for sure, but she definitely isn't parked like she should be. I know you said that she wasn't, so I'm just throwing that out there. She looks in good health and everything, and if she fits you and you aren't planning on breeding or showing in conformation classes, I wouldn't worry about her conformation too much, as long as she is sound and riding well.
